Bike Labyrinth makes the world just a little bigger. And that includes for seniors unable to get out independently.
The realistic cycling experience with first-rate visuals encourages people to keep moving longer. (Plus, it puts a smile on your face!)
Cycling routes through familiar environments promote cognitive function and improve recall.
Cycling together is a fun, accessible way to start conversions, promoting social interaction. And that’s not limited to residents and aides. It applies to relationships between residents too.
Absolutely! Bike Labyrinth has an option that allows residents to bike on their own. Naturally, that depends on the resident, but in general – yes! However, Bike Labyrinth also makes for a great icebreaker, a fun way to kickstart a conversation.
Bike Labyrinth is a system that allows people to take interactive bike tours through cities and nature reserves at home and abroad. The screen on which the cycling routes are displayed is connected to a hometrainer or other exercise machine. When the cyclist stops pedaling, the bike route on the screen pauses too. The 'footage’ is lifelike and realistic, and at pivotal moments, the cyclist decides which way they’ll go. The result is a unique experience. Bike Labyrinth makes routine exercise easy and relaxed – and it helps bring the feel of the outdoors in.
All Bike Labyrinth routes are labeled with a sensory setting so that aides can decide which route is best for the user. We recommend routes with a ‘Calm’ sensory setting for elderly users with dementia. Many nature routes are especially good, although routes through the village or town where the cyclist was born or grew up are also helpful. Depending on their abilities, some cyclists may also benefit from the ‘Everyday’ setting. The highest sensory setting is ‘Energizing’.
That depends. Most routes are between 15 and 20 minutes, but longer tours are also available. Plus, if you come to the end of a route, you can always start a new one. And you can also switch tours midway.
